We all know the right thing to do is take away all of Gaffgarion’s equipment before Zeirchele Falls. That’s a given. But what is more satisfying? One-shotting his ass or laughing as he pointlessly attempts to cast cure for 9HP of recovery? One time, he tried to punch Ramza and was offed immediately, good stuff. I’m not sure, but the most important thing is to make sure you tear through all the knights as quickly as possible in order to deny Delita any kills
What's the most satisfying?
...Do this, actually.
Make Gaffy a Knight. He's virtually guaranteed to have zero skills unlocked.
Now outfit him with all your best gear.
Give him Items as a subcommand. Make sure he has Potions learned.
Now, make sure you have at least one Thief who can steal every piece of equipment.
When the battle starts, he can't do anything but melee and use items.
ROB HIM BLIND!
Now just whack him around while he ineffectually heals.
End the battle.
You now have two of all your best equipment.ID: gpf2o4n
Whoa. That's a big brain move right there. Impressive.ID: gpdy6ol
What do you do with Delita? Just off him so he can’t end it?ID: gpgjbpf
It gives you back all the gear that was on him? I always figured you were just hosed if you didnt strip him bare before the fight.
MOST satisfying as far as Gaffgarion goes is robbing him of everything at the Gallows fight and then also at the castle gate fightID: gpf5qkq
Bonus points to give Ramza equip change, steal the blood sword, and murder gafgarion with it.
I know I saw a video where you can level him up to 97 or something and make him a ninja and trap him with dont move and he starts throwing Chaos Blades and Ragnarocks and all sorts of other high level weapons at your ranged characters that you can catch.ID: gpoyja7
Yes, but this is more tedious than practical.
Oh I always off delita asap. NO ONE takes exp from me.ID: gpdm0hk
Good idea on the exp, although I’ve never done it. I always got a lot of satisfaction out of Delita crush punching the hell out of those knights.
Honestly, Ramza and Rad are kinda the douchbags.
They knew who Gaffgarion was and have been working with him as apprentices... But then suddenly turn against him on this mission. Gaffgarion does say he believes he's working for the greater good, not sure if that is true or not, but between that and all the mercy he shown Ramza... I can see it.
Gaffgarion's only real crime is not telling them the whole plan, kept things close to the vest, Gaffgarion is a ruthless man (something Ramza and Rad should know about) and yet he still tried to get Ramza to stick with him... That tells me that Gaffgarion actually cared for Ramza. Though he has his limits and had to eventually fight Ramza for real.
My headcanon is that Gaffgarion didn't go all out on ANY of the fights, including the last one, because say what you will about Gaffgarion, he cared for Ramza. If Gaffgarion went all out on the first fight, Ramza would be 100% dead.
But I always liked to steal his shit, status the hell out of him, and throw stones at him.ID: gpft7f3
This is awesome. Also - FFT is the best. Complex characters with complex motivations. None of this reductionist nonsense. Worker 8 has more of a compelling backstory than 80%+ of videogame characters today - looking at you, Skullface.
I usually leave him as is so the battle is more fun. That battle is my favorite in the game and I like to enjoy it properly.
I know this isn't the point of this post, but I die every time I see place names from the re-translation
I can't even say it's bad, it's just... wrongID: gpdrl1g
Agreed. I loved the spell translations and their chants.ID: gpdqc78
Haha. Which one is cannon?ID: gpeljmf
Right? I mean, Sand Rat Sietch and Siedge Weald don't sound nearly as cool as Sand Rat Cellar and Sweggy Wood.
Removing his equipment is satisfying, but I prefer killing him with Ramza. My Ramza is always a squire sub white mage with half mp. Therefore, Ramza can easily kill him with ONE holy.
wait his name is gaffgarion? i picked this game up for the first time 3 days ago and ive been calling him gaffigan the entire time, im stuck at the gallows and ive been cursing gaffigan for almost an hour tonight.
Probably not, for first time plays anyway.
Algus is the original version’s name for Argath.
In the original version, in the opening, the text slows to a crawl and can’t be skipped when it says little money, so it became a meme:
L I T T L E - M O N E Y
The best thing ever would be become a Dark Knight yourself and humiliate him with the skills he didn't learn.
